Rosso - Goccia (Etna)
Originally from the Loire Valley, Cédric settled in Sicily thanks to WWOOFing, a worldwide initiative that connects volunteers with organic agricultural projects worldwide. Following stints in France, Italy, Spain, & Portugal, Cédric eventually took root in Etna, enamoured by the beauty of the landscape and the noble Nerello Mascalese. Working alongside another European ex-pat, Eduardo Torres Acosta (native of Tenerife) since 2014, Cédric bottled his first Goccia wines in 2018 from different plots dotted around Randazzo, traditionally planted using the vite ad albarello training (Gobelet). Wholly committed to organic farming he does everything by hand with the utmost care. The grapes were harvested at the end of September and after 10 days of maceration, the juice was transferred to steel tanks, where it rested until bottling in May.
